"The masterful wedding of the narrative and the lyric in these poems (whose subject is the maturation of a sensibility, the coming-of-age of a young Englishwoman―the power of her ties to family, husband and her 'adopted' country, Nigeria―as well as the illumination of her own soul and that of the narrator's) fills the reader with both sorrow and wonder. It is an instructive tale for our age―its vision of the individual will and imagination resisting the madness of politics and the destruction of war is singular and profound."

―Carol Muske-Dukes

Review:

. . . what happens when moral boundaries are obliterated and the sacredness of life becomes a kind of cynical joke. -- Ronald Gottesman, Professor Emeritus, University of Southern California

Daphne’s Lot is an absolute tour de force! -- David St. John

With the language of hard truth lifted by singing Abani speaks what is impossible to speak. -- Joy Harjo, Mvskoke poet and musician
